Moto E sales started off with a bang and are out of stock for quite some time. One of our reader has send us some info regarding a particular defect specially found on the Black model. Probably this is the reason why the stocks are delayed and Flipkart are making sure that everything is perfect before the delivery starts.

The back panel on the black colored Moto E handset are defective and they do not fit properly. The issue is with specific lot with back panel series D & F11/12. Flipkart will be replacing the defective units by 15th June, however if consumer wants a different colour they will provide that immediately (if available).

There are some users who have faced the issue of back panel not fitting properly and probably all of the specific lot or new lot that Flipkart has, are with the defect. Users have an option to choose a different color or wait for few more days.

Well I believe this could be the primary reason why the stocks are still out of stock.
